Default I heart racing (+/- 20 pics)

This was the first autocross of 2007 at the wiregrass region. The weather was nice (around 78 degrees, whoa) so I decided to go for a nice little drive to the track. I took a few pictures, not many are action shots but there were some interesting rides out this time, we had a huge turnout. It was a fun course but I got beat pretty bad, about 5 seconds by the silver Focus I know. Probably because of a combination of my weak tires, lack of a manual transmission, and lack of experience. Here are some of my decent shots.

Yes, that's about 2,000 Subarus


This is our playground; Hunt Army Airfield, Newton, AL. It looks big because it is big.

This is called autocross. If you've ever seen slalom skiing, it's a lot like that. There are cone gates you must pass through in order. If you want more info go to scca.com or look up "autocross" or Solo2" racing on google.

^That car is a Datsun 510, and it was actually the fastest car out there. It's worth noting that it beat a 2004 (I think, but it's the model right before the one now) Z06 Corvette on race tires. It was about 19 seconds faster than I was.

Yeah, that's why it's so popular. You can race a daily driven car or a monstrous trailer queen, and you're classed accordingly.
